This is always a joy to go to. The films are well done and a treat for guests who have not experienced Omnimax.

The colossal, 1930s architecture alone is well worth the visit. For those classic film lovers out there, think "Metropolis" meets "Union Station." Bring a camera!

I visited the Center to see a film at the Omnimax, which is much like an IMAX, except the screen curves around the audience like a partial globe, immersing viewers in the experience. A lot of fun, and a fun, novel experience.

Is nice to see that the city is taking pride in the art deco treasures they have, I have never seeing a train station so great and feel a litte sad that those days of traveling are gone........

The Museum/Terminal is one of the nation's most outstanding example of Art Deco architecture. Beautifully restored and maintained, it is always fascinating to examine some new details on every visit. They also work at attracting top exhibits and do an excellent job in hosting these events. We most recently enjoyed the Pompeii exhibit that was truly fascinating.

The Museum Center is certainly one of Cincinnati's landmark buildings and they have some excellent static and changing exhibits, not to mention the Omnimax theater. Originally a train station, this art deco masterpiece houses a variety of exhibits not the least of which is a grand model railroad running through "old" Cincinnati. The only down side is the price. Expect to pay about $16 for the Museum and Omnimax plus several more dollars for admission to any special exhibits plus an additional $6 for parking. The upcoming exhibit in November of 2012 is the Dead Sea Scrolls. Very exciting, but a family of four can expect to pay between $90 and $100 for their visit if they want to see everything the Museum has to offer.
